Opposition leader Raila Odinga and Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru have finally reconciled.
Kenyans on social media, however, have expressed mixed reactions in the latest move.
Some have lauded the spirit of handshake while others have expressed their disappointment following the move.
Governor Waiguru announced that they finally agreed to settle their court differences in the spirit of the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Opposition leader.
“Just had a meeting with former Prime Minister H.E Right Honorable @RailaOdinga on the outstanding matter in court. In the spirit of cohesion and reconciliation in the country, the matter stands settled. The Spirit of the National Handshake lives on,” she tweeted.
The former Prime Minister and now the High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa said that they agreed with Waiguru to “let by-gones be by-gones” and leave the matter of the NYS scandal in the hands of relevant authorities.
“Held a meeting this afternoon with the Governor of Kirinyaga County Anne Waiguru and agreed to “let by-gones be by-gones” and leave the matter of the NYS scandal in the hands of investigators.
“Ms Waiguru said her case against me is now settled in the spirit of reconciliation that the nation has embarked on. We also reviewed the status of devolution in the country and agreed to exchange views frequently on how to address the challenges,” stated Raila.
